otoh (54) 720p works for me - I struggle to see any extra detail when watching 1080, and I usually watch in a window rather than full screen anyway. 1080 videos can be much larger file sizes - so when there is a choice I've taken to choosing 720.

RustyJ (145) I always go for 1080p if it's available and shot in FullHD, not just upscaled from lower resolution. I've made maybe one exception on EvilAngel when some single scenes in 1080p were closer to five gigabytes.

gaypornolover (38) 720p suits me - I don't think I'd see much real benefit above that and the file sizes mean it too much of a trade-off in terms of hard-disk space.

In an ideal world of course if I had unlimited storage and super-fast unlimited internet - plus a full HD screen to watch it all on - I guess I'd want 1080p.

Until then 720p is more than adequate for me.

Monahan (42) REPLY TO #1 - otoh :

640 is usually OK but there's just enough extra sharpness to 1280x720 that I usually go for that. I agree with otoh that it's really tough to see what 1080 brings to the party especially when the files are huge and the download time, even with fast d/l speeds, is just not worth it.

When I watch some of the 320 stuff in my stash, there is enough discernable difference to even 640 to warrant the larger file sizes; but the difference to 1080 is minimal.

Anything over 720 really does very little if anything on a computer screen.
I would use only Hi-Res for DVD transfer to store and watch that way. But otherwise 720 is best.

messmer (137) A few years ago I thought that 640x480p was just great and now it looks pathetic (at least to me) on my monitor when played in full screen. This is why I go for the latest and best even though the files are large. I really don't want to delete anything for a while just because new technology overtakes it., so1920 x 1080p it is. For now 720p is quite good as well and I download it without hesitation if 1080p is not available.

Marcus (47) 720p for me, although 640x480 is adequate.

pinkerton (39) It depends on how you watch your porn - if you have a large 1080p TV then you'll benefit from the 1080p 1920x1080 video, otherwise 1280x720 is more than enough

rearadmiral (384) I never used to be a 'size queen,' but in the past six months or so I've completely re-thought my downloads. Now I download the 720p stuff if I can get it because it is a good compromise between file size and quality. I will admit that for special occasions I might go all the way to 1080p - like if that's available for Lexi Belle's first anal scene when I get around to joining Elegant Angel...

marcdc1 (174) I'm running a rather old machine (about 6 years old). So I have 'performance issues' (after rearadmiral's pun I couldn't resist one of my own). I've found that 1080 is too jitttery on my machine and I was really looking forward to picking up a new machine to help with that.

Reading the thread, I may not have to bother with the larger file size - so once again the PU community saves me time and effort :)

pat362 (373) I'm not sure if I have ever donwloaded anything as high as 1920x1080 but I'm sure it would be the best but I usually limit my resolution to 640x480 or the 720p.

lk2fireone (196) 720p seems the best size. I don't see any benefit by watching 1080p in terms of clarity or detail, and 1080p files are much larger in size, so they take much more space on the hard drive.

Denner (235) 720 is enough/ok to view (normally), so....that's it.

mr3633 (9) I will only download select scenes in true 1080P HD. Otherwise, I pretty much stick with what I consider "acceptable" (720P) while making an effort to minimize the space allocation impact to my hard drive. Much depends on how clear the lower resolution looks on my screen. Most of the time I am pleased with 720P.

Thanks for that. I forced myself to catalogue recently downloaded stuff and write reviews for some sites with my reward being an Elegant Angel membership. I have my credit card in hand right now and will be joining in a few seconds...

exotics4me (463) I take 1280x720, but picked other because of 960x540. DDF uses it some and I've seen a few other sites that do too. I like that one best.

tangub (155) 720p is preferrable, 1080p just takes too long to download and takes up too much hd space.

Ambition (15) I choose the highest quality available, I'm happy with 720p, but why not pick 1080p if I can have it?
